2015 Lighting Technology Overview

2015 Lighting Technology Overview
Publication Date: 

The 2015 Lighting Technology Overview (LTO) provides overviews of commercial and residential lighting technologies and strategies with the potential to significantly reduce California’s lighting energy use. The guide includes information on expected energy savings, factors to consider when comparing products, sample products, and case studies for indoor and outdoor lighting and controls technologies. Products in the guide include:

  • Omnidirectional (A19) Lamps
  • Directional Lamps
  • Linear LED Retrofit Solutions
  • Track Lighting
  • Recessed Downlights
  • Troffers & Surface Mounts
  • High-Bay & Low-Bay Lighting
  • Parking Garage Luminaires
  • Wall Packs
  • Pole-Mounted Parking & Area
  • Networked Lighting Control Systems

The LTO directly supports California as it works to meet its energy-efficiency and environmental policy goals. Stakeholders may use the 2015 LTO to encourage the adoption of its recommended technologies. Demonstrations through emerging technology programs or inclusion in utility incentive programs will help accelerate each technology’s adoption rate and help achieve the California Lighting Action Plan’s savings goals, “By 2020, advanced products and best practices will transform the California lighting market to deliver a 60–80% reduction in statewide electrical lighting energy consumption from 2010 levels.”
